The different services provided by Confer for its customers include- Compare-as-a-Service (CfaaS), Home Lending, Borrower Consultation, Financial Transparency, and BlockChain Lending.

The idea of Confer was sown by Yatin Karnik, the CEO and Founder of the company who aims to help home buyers make a conscious and favorable to them decision in choosing the right mortgage product amid rising interest rates.
While the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a US government agency, makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat borrowers fairly, they have also come up with a format for Loan Estimates for the convenience of the borrowers. However, a tool to compare official Loan Estimates doesn't exist. This is where Confer follows, the only tool that uses a patent-pending technology to compare two or more official mortgage Loan Estimates in order to find the most advantageous mortgage for a borrower.
The company is on a mission to ubiquitize mortgage by creating an idiosyncratic mortgage that is customized to every borrower's custom financial need and property details. The platform allows peer-to-peer cryptographic trading that is irreversible and is open to all, regardless of borders. With 125+ years of combined experience in mortgage finance and technical expertise, Confer facilitates tools that enable borrowers to shop lenders and put them in a bargaining position.
Confer operates on an innovative mortgage platform powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning to customize a mortgage that is financially beneficial to the borrower. Confer’s app is a one-stop solution that provides borrowers with the ability to shop/compare and save - which allows the user to customize mortgage products to suit their needs. It is the most cost-effective option since it is available free of cost to the user. The app is built with the state of the art technology providing its users with fast and real-time results from calculating a simple monthly payment based on a given rate to picking a rate-point combination based on the term of mortgage.
